County Waterford Association & Waterford Hurling Club of New York to honour Maura Bermingham (nee Prendergast) and Angela Allen.

 

Our congratulations to Maura and Angela who will be honoured at the annual Waterford Dinner Dance in New York on March 18th.

 

Maura, daughter of Mike Prendergast and the late Mary Prendergast (nee Fahy) is being celebrated for her continued support of the Waterford Hurling Club

and Association. A member most of her adult life, her interest and participation has cumulated in her present position of Secretary of the Waterford Hurling Club NY.

 Maura has played a supporting role in coordinating the annual dances, proudly marches in the annual St. Patrick's Day parades, and is a fervent supporter of Waterford Hurling both at home and in New York.. She is presently a Committee Member of the Thomas Francis Meagher 150' Anniversary Ceremony, being held on July 1, 2017. The Prendergast family are great supporters of Tallow GAA and Local community organisations over many years. Maura’s father Mike is vice President of Tallow GAA club. She is following in the footsteps of her dad Mike and late mum Mary who were honoured by the NY Waterford Association in the past.

 

Angela, well known to us all, hails from Kilwatermoy. . She is the eldest daughter of Eugene and Jenny Allen and has two sisters Maureen and Veronica. Angela arrived in New

York for the World Cup in the summer of 1991,fell in love with the city and decided to stay. She is the current treasurer of the Waterford Association and an avid supporter of  Gaelic Games, and as her golfing partners will attest, she is "long off the tee". Angela’s regular trips home are usually timed to coincide with Waterford championship games. Two of her nephews have represented Waterford at underage and adult level, not forgetting her uncle Billy Tobin who was a hurling legend back in the day.  

 

We would also like to congratulate Modeligo native Matty Cashman who is being honoured by the Waterford Hurling Club NY with the Clubman of the Year award.

 

Its indeed a fitting honour for these two ladies who have made a significant contribution to the sporting and cultural life of  the Waterford Diaspora in New York. Many of us will remember the late 70s and 80s when young Waterford people were flocking to New York. With stricter immigration regulations the Waterford community in New York is much diminished now in terms of numbers. Great credit is due to those who keep the Waterford Association and GAA still vibrant in New York.  People like John Phelan, Tom Fahey, Mike Prendergast, Denny Fahey Jim Cullinane ,Peter A. McKay, Patricia Duggan, Bobby Power ,Leigh Mulhearne, Eileen Carey ,Paddy Power, keep the flag flying  and we salute their efforts.  Apologies if I’ve omitted someone.

 

To commemorate the occasion a Souvenir Journal will be published. If you wish to show support for our fellow county men and women in New York and congratulate the honourees you can do so by emailing TFahey@burke.org. Journal ads are available for $60 (half page) $100 (full page).
